Vallejo SOUP

Join us for the inaugural Vallejo SOUP!

Vallejo SOUP is a microgranting potluck celebrating and supporting community projects in Vallejo. Each SOUP features a potluck at a unique venue in Vallejo, a local artist’s work, community project presentations, lively conversations, and democracy in action as the participants vote to fund their favorite community projects. Everyone is welcome at SOUP, at whatever price they can afford. Pay-what-you-can to attend as any donation (suggested $5-20) will help fund community projects in Vallejo.

During the event participants learn about four projects ranging from art, urban agriculture, citizen science, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and more. Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and then answer four questions from the audience. While sharing the meal, participants have the opportunity to discuss which projects they think will most benefit the community before casting their votes. At the end of the night, we count the ballots and the winner goes home with all of the money raised to carry out their project. Winners come back to a future SOUP to report their project’s progress.

Doors Open at 6pm
Proposal Presentations at 7pm
Dinner around 8pm
Artist performance around 8:40pm
Winners announced around 9-9:15pm

SOUP is a potluck style meal. Please bring some food to share – your donations are greatly appreciated. Anything from soup, salad, dessert, to your favorite meal.

SOUP is a great way to raise money, build community support and get connections to local resources that can help you carry out your project. Your idea can be about ANYTHING within Vallejo. Proposal submissions close one week before the dinner on Sunday at 11:59pm. Proposal Applications will open shortly so stay tuned.
